    Thank you Nightshade.I've been reading soup recipes in particular recently and am appalled at the number that feature leeks. Yes, I am aware that they have a more delicate flavour than onion BUT the price !!!!!!!

    So true, Fish Head - leeks are not affordable (usually $2 each) and one solution is to grow them yourself if you can. Our family chicken soup was chicken stock (no meat - that was used for a delicious chicken casserole), with home made egg noodles, and some Maggi seasoning. Herbs and lemons are another costly item. Good to grow these yourself as well then you will always have flavour at hand for very little cost.
